Friday Food Round-Up!

What this week was like…On Sunday I threw a curry in the crockpot because we needed some lunch and we needed a meal in the freezer.  Avocado toast made one fine lunch on Tuesday.  Marcus was out-of-town for a solid 36 hours.

Some parts of the week?  Were really together.  Other parts of the week?  Were really not.

Wednesday – Roasted Chicken with 4-3-2-1 Spice Rub, Oven Fries, and Asparagus Salad


This dinner was originally supposed to be some sort of sambal chicken with a chimichurri sauce.  Sounds great, right?

Except for that part where I didn’t marinate the chicken and by the time I got home from work and wrapped up my run, chimichurri sauce sounded more like my Everest than a condiment I wanted to make from scratch.

Dad was coming over, and I happened to know that this particular meal would be a hit with him.   Easy decision.

Thursday – Porcupine Meatballs from Dinner: A Love Story, Garlic Green Beans from Great, Easy Meals and brown rice


Fact: I have never, ever eaten porcupine meatballs prior to this dinner.  And for whatever reason, this completely not-so-fancy dish made me inordinately happy.

I feel like this dinner and the variations on it are a world of untapped potential.
